PEARL HANDLED REVOLVER
Brit dark rockers PEARL HANDLED REVOLVER return to the fold with an
engrossing album and track. The foursome have just revealed a lyric video
for Machine Gun – https://youtu.be/pUQ4k-3qF-c , which is lifted from their
compelling new album, Fantasy Reigns, out Friday 5th July.
PEARL HANDLED REVOLVER have travelled a long way to get to 2019. Over the
last decade, they’ve had their fair share of escapades. Their four EPs, two
live albums and three studio albums chart a journey from the limits of
primal blues to blackened psychedelic soul music, via unlikely liaisons
between cult film scores and bare bones Stoner Rock. Their aim is to get
their fans feet moving, while their heads slowly succumb to an awareness of
the madness induced by the modern world.
To date, the quartet have pricked ears and garnered much praise from a slew
of notable outlets, namely: Classic Rock Magazine, Fireworks, Powerplay,
Rhythm Magazine, Blues Magazine, Sound on Sound, Louder Than War and The
Obelisk. Besides an impressive body of recorded work, PEARL HANDLED REVOLVER
have also widely toured, sharing stages with everyone from The Black Crowes,
The Blockheads, My Baby, Hawkwind, Focus, Uriah Heep, 10CC, Don Airey &
Friends and Stray.
Now with a nod, a wink and a disclaimer stating that they hope you are
wearing loose fitting clothing, they proudly present their fourth LP,
Fantasy Reigns. Self-produced by the band, it is their most expansive,
singular album to date. It is a soundtrack for both the dancefloor and the
dark corners of a club, where release and catharsis can be found in the
relentless motion of dance, the rhythms of conversation, shared ideas, and
the spark and crackle of neurons vibrating in inner space.
Fantasy Reigns unleashes an intoxicating blend of psychedelic rock, dance
dynamics, loose limbed grooves and hallucinatory storytelling to ignite, as
the band suggest, “an escape from the lies we build around ourselves, the
lies we’re told and the lies we would rather swallow than face”.
